Our Junior Presenters Seminar Series
is separate from Junior Instructor Course Offerings.
Our Junior Presenters are gifted young people with a desire to share information they are passionate about with others.
In our Junior Presenters Seminar Series, our Junior Presenters lead a 50-60 minute webinar* filled with information to excite their peers. All of our Junior Presenters are current or former students of Athena’s Advanced Academy.
In addition, Junior Presenters choose a secular charity or non-profit that aligns with their subject matter and/or is important to them.
100% of the profits from the Junior Presenter seminars go to the Junior Presenter’s charity or non-profit of choice.**
Oftentimes, Athena’s Educators or Junior Instructors will also present during the time the Series is held. Look for more information about this Series below!
To become a Junior Presenter, please sign up in the corresponding section in the Social Forums at Athena’s during the first two weeks of April!

|American Third Parties: A History of Perennial Candidates and Defying the Mainstream|
The United States’ two-party system has often been considered flawed for being incredibly rigid on political ideology.

In this seminar, we will look at and discuss the history and present of American third parties, both absurd and legitimate, who participated in American elections, as well as how those parties have affected the present-day American political climate.
